* Please Note We Are Not 100% sure Of The Actual Lineage
Before The DAT Copy Used For This Tape!*
** My Recollection From This Time Frame and My Tape Was My
Friend Made Several Copies To Tapes (Multiple Decks Used
At Once) For His Friends From The DATS He Received. Most
Likely From Listening To This Tape It Came From One Of
Those Dubbing Sessions.Though A Very Slight Possibility
It Was Put To PCM Before He Dubbed To My Tape. Again
Having Multiple Tapes Dubbed From His PCM Most Likely Not! **
Comments:While Listening to another PCM source of this show
I remembered this tape tucked away.In the time frame (Early 90's)
When I received this tape I was graced to have access of complete
shows of my friends masters fresh off of tour, needless to say
they took a higher priorty listening to them then this one did.
Some distortion in some areas and a few small digi snits from
somewhere in the lineage, still all in all a nice listen!!!!!
AS ALWAYS ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Garcia screamin about a 'young man!!" the 1st guitar break he shreds and Phil is everywhere. the final climactic guitar break smokes as well, brent is wailing on organ, everyone is doing it. if there was a serious quality SBD of this show it would really shine
just too bad there is no SBD of any kind or a gift would be something of the quality of the philly dew from the spring that is a really good SBD
d.lemiex says this show doesnt exist in the vault and none have surfaced in circulation one of the few shows post 76 not in the 'vault' and not in circulation ie it was passed around at some point but never made it back to GDP. either it was never taped or taped and lost soon after the show, tour. at glens falls in either 81 or 82 i found a cassette on the floor while leaving the show. it was a SBD of the 1st set !!!

great show, " short" first set but ripping from the get go, i really like the " i can see clearly now" riffs by brent at the start of scarlet gets the crowd going nicely. and buckle up it is a great 2nd se.

The scarlet keeps going
The jam within Scarlet is great - just when you think it's peaked, they go round again. I tend to lean toward soundboards, but the crowd noise here adds energy without detracting...unusual transition to fire, slowing way down at about the 12 minute mark, worth a listen

Fantastic show. Nothing more you really need to say.
This is a good source. Has some range that the more recent Beyer does not have. I think I still like the Beyer better tho.
I might be wrong, but I don't think there were any digital PCMs in June of '83. I think we were still at Betamax being the most advanced at that point. I am guessing this had a D5 as its original source.
